Tis’ the Season

Christmas break: No school Family time Friends galore Getting swole’ Coffee shop visits on coffee shop visits I guess this time of year isn’t that bad. Despite the wretched cold….  From a Christian perspective, it is the time of waiting, preparation, and anticipation. It’s the season of Advent. Now, I am nowhere near an expert on this idea and what it fully looks like, yet, I know how the initial idea affects me. In my mind there is a consistent fight of the concept of Christmas by the mass media. I see all these wants and a ton of receiving.[…]

Advice Session 2 | Modest is Hottest?

Hello friends! Happy Christmas break to you all!  Today is part two of my advice giving series.  This week there was only one topic that made sense to talk about… and that was modesty.  I know that may seem weird… but I have been thinking a lot about it.  WIth the whole Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this week and the endless instagram pictures of Christian girls I know dressed provocatively, I just feel like it needs to be addressed.  Many people may not see this, but maybe I can give some advice that may help at least one person. Now[…]

What Strategic Management taught me about Yoga Pants

Blog world: It’s finals week. I’m not going to bore you with another post about it, but I did just kill my Strategic Management final. Whoop! Strategic Management is the business capstone, and I learned so much in it that I couldn’t even begin to tell you about how awesome of a class it was. However, after taking my final, I feel pretty confident about the information I learned. Has anyone been on Facebook lately? Can anyone tell me why I’ve read more about yoga pants than the fight for world peace in the last 3 months? I’ve seen so[…]

Advice Session 1 | Studying for FINALS…

Hello friends! So I decided to start a series on my blog!  I am going to be giving advice on miscellaneous subjects throughout the rest of the school year.  My biggest passion in life is giving advice to people… that’s what I’m studying in school!  So not only is this great practice for me, but I also know that I enjoy reading people’s thoughts when they are extremely passionate about it and authentic… And hopefully you can take something away from it! This week I felt it only fitting to talk about… studying.  I know most of us cringe at[…]

Dear Santa,

The taste of the chicken flavor is becoming mundane and you just watched the series finale of Prison Break. This is the most wonderful time of the year for college students who consistently indulge in Ramen Noodles and their roommate’s Netflix. It’s December. Which means: School is out soon Christmas is around the corner Socks with Rudolph on them are socially acceptable As the jolly man in the, simply put, soft-large-red-onesie is fast-approaching, instead of paying attention in class, I daydream of the things on my WANT list. This year that includes: TOMS A phone case Adidas watch Camera tripod[…]

Going to Juarez, be right back!

Hey blog world! So I spent last weekend in Juarez. Crazy, I know, but it was pretty tranquil and the people were wonderful. I went with my gorgeous friend Taylor. Her grandparents have a branch of Compassionate Ministries, which gives relief to areas in the world through supplies. Normally, they make a trip to Mexico before Christmas to give Nazarene pastors and their families gifts and clothing and other various things in time for the cold, winter season. They have a banquet and there are like 20 pastors from the area with their whole families in a restaurant. Taylor and[…]

Thanksgiving in a Nutshell

Hello friends! Classes are up and starting again at MNU after a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We had three different Thanksgivings this year with my family, and I got two of them on camera! This was also my first year going Black Friday shopping… which was an experience to say the least.  Didn’t get much accomplished but I did pick up quite a few movies for our movie nights in the dorm. (If you didn’t know, Walmart has 2 dollar movies! Check it out next year!) So here is just a snippet into my family life over the holiday! I hope[…]

Thas’ why we Friends!

This is the Thanksgiving Break edition of the “Thas why we Friends” series here on my blog. I set out to make a creative and funny, yet informative video with my friends. A parody, a funny high school story, or maybe try to gauge the impact that college has. Instead, this is what I got….. Thanks Katie and Amber, nothing changes.  Keep on and keep God, Joey

It’s the Holiday Season… So Let’s Be Thankful!

Hello friends! It’s another great day to write a blog and share with you my thoughts!  The past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about thankfulness.  It makes sense considering we are approaching Thanksgiving (which by the way is my favorite holiday!). I was listening to a sermon at my church a few weeks ago about this idea of thankfulness.  It’s funny how often we use words on a regular basis, but never really dive down deep and figure out what they really mean.  My pastor talked about the difference between gratitude and thankfulness, thankfulness being something more[…]

Tis the Season

(Please enjoy the sweet sounds of Sleeping At Last while reading this post) Attention Blog World: You may have been misled by our blogfeed as of this week. You may think based on the title of this post that the current season is that of TWIRP, which as you have probably figured out by now stands for MNU’s annual tradition: The Woman Is Required To Pay. While I did not TWIRP anyone, (see my post about dating,) I’m here to introduce a new topic to our faithful 6 readers out there. The holidays are upon us! It’s official. Thanksgiving is[…]
